A whole day and night had passed with no word from him and yet she knew that she was all his heart was filled with. In a new country, in a new place, mobile signals and communication lines might have failed him, but his restlessness somehow made it to her. It was just a day for the world but it was infinity for them. She prayed to the sun to go over to the other side and bring his message to her. As the first rays of the day hit her eager face, her lips automatically spread into an uninhibited grin. Her phone had beeped with his message. This enigmatic grey cotton saree with a striking red border makes a statement without any fuss. This one is a classic."
"The handloom cotton is a type of fabric that is woven using hand operated looms. Two sets of interlacing yarns, the warp (length) and weft (width), are woven on a mechanised loom operated by weavers. These looms do not use electricity. Human handling lends the fabrics a unique feel and renders the fabrics more value. The resultant fabric is softer, more durable and much more comfortable than machine-made fabrics. Handloom cotton is more breathable and thus feels lighter in summers and provides more insulation in winters. The dyeing process also becomes easier for handloom cotton as the colour penetration is substantially more. Hues are absorbed better thus look resplendent on handloom cotton.
The art of hand weaving is labour intensive and takes a longer time. But, the beauty it adds to the fabric is priceless. Choosing handloom cotton supports the rich weaving heritage of India and lets the weavers carry on the precious art-form to the future generations as well"
